Japan Disaster Relief Fund

The tragedy of the earthquake and tsunami in the Tohoku Region of Japan has inflicted losses and damages that will take weeks to truly calculate.  All of our thoughts and prayers go out to those people affected.  Locally, there has been a tremendous outpouring of support and a desire to assist in any way possible.  In response to this outcry, JASGP has set up a fund for donations from Philadelphians who wish to assist in the relief effort.  All donated funds will be sent to the Japanese Red Cross Society in Japan.  No amounts will be deducted for JASGP’s administrative expenses. 

The JASGP is exempt from federal tax under Section 501 (c) 3, and your contribution is deductible as a charitable donation.
